Number:Lab & Yuna Yang

Thursday, September 08, 2011

At Number:Lab's Spring/Summer 2012 show, the collection showcased a distinct black & white print along with bright orange and blue accents. The inspiration behind it was Picasso's "Bathers with Beach Ball 1928" painting in addition to skateboarders at the futuristic skate park at Pier 62 in New York. It took a more recreational approach to athletics.

The collection was made up of performance fabrics, luxe/breathable textiles that can transcend from the beach to the city streets. "The look, overall, bridges the wistful romance of the French Riveria in 1930's and the contemporary nonchalance of the New York City skateboarder."

After the show, I headed over to the Yuna Yang presentation at the Chelsea Art Museum. The theme was "Magic" but it reminded me of a youthful prom - something you might see in Teen Vogue with all of the bright colors. However, some of the pieces were elegant.


Yuna Yang's inspiration was the romance & celebration of life's riches & struggle, as they blend harmoniously into a new form of art. Frederico Fellini's La Dolce Vita, was known for his blend of fantasy & baroque images, was a main inspiration as well as surrealism depicted from iconic paintings by Dali and Man Ray. The main fabrics used in this collection were silk charmeuse, silk chiffon and double satin organza.
